UCSF and SFGH are on the leading edge of online and computer-assisted educational technology, specifically with procedural instruction. To view these videos you may be required update your browser with the latest Flash and Quicktime extensions.
As a pilot project to encourage online learning modules, given the asynchrony of student and resident shift schedules, these Virtual Lectures were created by Dr. Michelle Lin. For EM Clerkship students, please view the Chest Pain and EKG Interpretation modules. These are interactive modules (with audio) and require a Flash-capable computer.
There is a post-test section following the Chest Pain module to test what you've learned, which requires internet access. You can access from the last slide of the module or click on this link: http://cdemcurriculum.org/cgi-bin/gen_quiz.pl
Authored by Dr. Elizabeth Brown and Dr. David Duong, this module will help you approach the undifferentiated trauma patient. This module, which was created using Articulate, requires a Flash-capable computer with audio capability.
